We’re enjoying a gorgeous mid-September weekend in late August, with crisp morning readings in the 50s and highs in the upper 70s! Abundant sunshine and low humidity make this the best weekend of the summer to date.
High pressure will nose southeast from Ontario into New York and Pennsylvania, ensuring a dry northeasterly flow. Gradually, the winds will shift to the southeast, bringing higher humidity by Monday morning.
The return flow from the south will generate an area of showers and isolated storms spreading west to east Monday, with the most substantial rainfall in southwest Ohio, tapering off to spotty showers farther east.
A cold front will approach late Tuesday, with scattered showers and a few storms developing in a muggy air mass. After the front passes midweek the weather will turn pleasant and seasonably warm midweek. Another cold front will arrive on Friday, followed by cooler and dry weather for the Buckeyes home opener on Saturday.
Tonight: Clouds increase, not as cool, rain southwest. Low 63
Monday: Mostly cloudy, showers likely by afternoon. High 74
Tuesday: Scattered showers, storms, mostly cloudy, warm and sticky cloudy. High 85 (68)
Wednesday: Clouds a.m., clearing. High 83 (64)
Thursday: Sunny. High 81 (59)
